My two cents,
I figured it out the hard way (trial and error) to expose for highlights and adjust under exposure in Photoshop.
But I am quite happy right now!
i wanted to share something I accidentally discovered about photoshop. You can record your actions (like macros in VBA) and use them for batch processing (File menu-> Automate). This has made life easy.
While I like treat all my pictures individually, sometimes batch processing helps. Like once I was using incandescent WB, after which my friend borrowed it to take some pics of his kid in different light conditions. resultant pics had a blue hue. I recorded one action adjusting the hue. Then i used it in the automate process. Saved me a LOT of time.
sometimes I also treat underexposure by batch auto-contrast - it may not work always, but when I am shooting low res jpegs of my friends kids, which are meant for the kids grandpa to view online, they seem to be fine. they address underexposure. (though I would not dream of doing this to my RAW files - i like to play with them, it gives ALMOST the same fun as printing test prints in a darkroom, adjusting contrast and reprinting).
for other people like me, who are relatively new to photoshop, you can access the actions dialog from the Windows Menu -> Show Action.
In the actions menu, on the top right, there is a small "play" button. Cilck on that to reveal a menu, with record.
maybe it will make life a little easier for you too!

Its a 18% gray world!
